Where are they now? Felicity Watson…

We always love to welcome former pupils of HOHS to their old school, and over the Easter holidays were delighted to catch up with Felicity Watson, who came for a tour and a chat while visiting Norfolk. Felicity, now in her mid 20s and living in London, told me, “I have such happy memories of my times here. I was at HOHS for ten years and sometimes boarded as my family travelled – it is such a warm, friendly school, I loved it!”

Felicity achieved three A Levels at Grade A and currently works as an events supervisor for the National Trust, based at Eastbury Manor House near London. She is also studying for a Masters degree in Heritage.

“I honestly think I got my love of old buildings and heritage in general from HOHS”, she said. “I loved boarding in the  old attic bedrooms at Hethersett and the buildings themselves always fascinated me!”

Sports Update: Summer Term

Sports-icon

Welcome back, everyone, from the PE Department – an exciting term awaits us! Now we have the daylight on our side, we commence a term of athletics, cricket and rounders.
We have plenty of rounders fixtures in place for our teams, starting with the U16 team next Wednesday vs Sprowston at home. The picture below is from last summer.

We will be developing our ability to run, jump and throw in preparation for Sports Day which will be on Thursday 21st June. This is a whole school event and something we all look forward to. Sports Day support from parents and family members is greatly encouraged – so if you can come to cheer us on, please do!

We will be introducing the pupils to our new fitness suite and look forward to seeing them all in action. I am wondering whether we can row, ride, run or cycle to somewhere far away if we keep track ofour collective distances as a school?!

Mrs Woods, Head of PE

Welcome Back

A very warm welcome back to school to all our day pupils, boarders, parents and staff! Mr Crump led the seniors in an assembly this morning before the girls started lessons in what will be an important exam term for many. The younger pupils, meanwhile,  have had an exciting morning learning and catching up with their friends and have just enjoyed their tasty lunch before going off to play outside. There are spring flowers around the grounds and the sun seems to be trying to shine to prove the point that this is, after all, the summer term!
